4.16/5  rDev +2.7%

A: medium amber and cloudy, few fingers of ivory head; some lace left behind

S: soft fruits and pale malts, some citrus as well as orchard-types; hints of spice and drier elements, almost crisp and fresh

T: a nice take on the tripel - the sugars and fruits are muted and paired with more hops than a typical tripel - creamy lemon notes and lush peach, pear, or apple-kinda characteristics; crisp and herbal, slightly citric hops, also muted so as to balance with the malts.

M: medium-to-full, soft, smooth, creamy, and fuzzy; slight tingle of citrus and carbonation fizz

O: very nice, distinct and well-made - definitely a tripel I'd go back to - had plenty of the typical characteristics - so there's no mistaking it as a tripel - but the hoppiness lent it an American IPA-kinda character, too.

Served in a tulip at Brendan Behan in J.P.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale yellow orange with good clarity and vision of tiny bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Vanilla, pilsner malts, powdery yeast, apple, pear, warm booze, spicy, a little banana, and Belgium candy.

Taste: Same as above. Very tasty and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little booze, tingly, chewy, medium bodied, spicy, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Enjoyed a lot over the years. Pretty nice stuff.

3.3/5  rDev -18.5%

Appearance: a golden to copper color. a finger of a white head that fades quickly and leaves a slight lacing behind. Hazy and opaque

Smell: earthy hops, cloves and banana, bubblegum sweetness and some fusel alcohols.

Taste: opens up with yeasty characters, some banana along with a good amount of clove and some subtle bubblegum. middle has earthy hops. backend is full of bready malts and some more belgian yeast character. little to no alcohol.

Mouthfeel: good heavier sipper, some warmth, slightly dry and slightly bitter.

Overall: this is not a traditional tripel, and while its good, in terms of a tripel I find it lacking a lot. I don't like the bubblegummy flavor in this style and the earthiness seems to make the other tastes more subtle.

Poured chilled in hotel glass (oy vey--it was all that was available)

A: slightly dark amber, very luscious, ample head; creamy bubbles; carbonation is very active; great lacing
S: yeast, banana, very strong and inviting (the aroma was detectable just upon uncapping)
T: amazing flavor; very complex, much in the Belgian style; sweet, moderately bitter; pear, banana, and pepper overtones; strong alcohol backbone, tasting higher than the 8.5% advertised.
M: very smooth

I would have this again any time. It was my first beer from Pretty Things, and I'm definitely intrigued, will look for others.

Pours a brilliant golden straw with a lingering ivory head.

Pear and clove accompany white pepper and confectioners sugar in the aroma.

Flavor reveals more resiny and vinous notes. Light apple tartness contrasts earthy, resiny hops, with notes of bananas adding complexity. The contrast between tart and earthy is nice.

Body is a touch heavy, smooth, with noted alcohol warmth.

A touch hot, but good depth of flavor. The bitterness is more than I prefer, but great balance, otherwise.
